  • Exchange of damaged/stained banknotes or some old version USD banknotes (see the table below for definitions)
    Foreign currency cash is not a domestic currency, the collection method (collection fee is charged based on the Bank's fee schedule) is used for damaged/stained banknotes and some old version USD banknotes. If the foreign currency cash merchant bank authenticates the banknotes, it will take approximately 4-6 months from the time the banknotes are collected until your account is credited. The actual amount credited will be based on the amount exchanged and paid by the foreign currency cash merchant bank.
  • Currencies not in circulation worldwide
    Some countries have stricter rules for the sale of banknotes, and foreign banks may reject banknotes sold back to them. The Bank will need to ask if the foreign currency cash merchant bank accepts the banknotes on a case by case basis. If the response is that the banknotes can be accepted, the collection method will be used, and the handling method, fee schedule, and actual amount credited will be same as the preceding paragraph.
